instability going and that will get thunderstorms dicey. we don't have that possibility in fully affect here today there could be a gusty storm but that would be definitely very isolated. and it would be just that in nature. now, ahead of the rain currently falling back toward central missouri this is area of low pressure heading our way into tomorrow but as guidance continues to unfold, i think things will shift a little bit more so in timing and placement of the storm, but severe weather threat is still with us but we're talking marginal risk on friday and it looks like really nasty storms are likely at night further off to the south. we're talking kent county, sussex county if you have plans to hit up rehoboth area, dewey beach area, as you travel down that way you may run into stormy weather late in the day friday. a lot of us getting weekend started. make sure you are wet's wear. outside palmyra cove liberty park it feels like the fall
